Freedom vs Slavery.
We have discovered a simple set of ideas that makes a difference in the way people think. The tug of war between stories. Gratitude is the only logical response. Intelligent Design.
I am claiming the mind is intelligently designed. We are free to choose. Free to choose? Intelligently designed? Then our most rewarding experience in living ought to contribute to making life in this world a better experience. Yes!! We are free to choose what is better.
There is also an opposition. Within our thoughts, there is a “tug of war”. Freely choosing what is better allows us to make mistakes so that we can learn and choose more wisely the next time. Thoughts, images, urges moods and strategies fight for control over our best efforts. Freedom is capable of sharing openly, even teaching the ideas that guide our choices, actions and world views. Slavery does not know of these options.
This “Open Source Language” describing how the mind works will get better and better as more and more of us pitch in with ideas that prove themselves to be true. It is designed this way. With freedom to choose the better, many more and different people will contribute, confirm, improve and expand our descriptions of the same and similar observations. The language of freedom to choose will improve.
The fossil record says DNA transmitting effectively designed anatomy means our Emotional Anatomy has been like this from the beginning. I mean the DNA design of our Emotional Anatomy hasn’t changed any more than a hand or a liver, it is being discovered. Investigated by each of us.
Free to choose discovers that accurate navigation and therefor wisely choosing helps. When we are lost in the physical world, a compass helps to find our way. This open source language intends to become useful guidance to you personally. It intends to improve our knowledge wisdom and understanding of how we function as humans thinking.
There is a “tug of war” inside the heart of every human, an effort to capture our attention and keep us from discovering the truth of Freedom to Choose.
Freedom vs Slavery.
We must Learn to talk about our compartments. By design, we deal with the challenges of life as they arrive one after another. We form a dominant compartment of thinking and behavior we call our personality, even our character.
The most fortunate among us pass through an orderly development and emerge relatively whole. Each stage of life offering progressively difficult challenges, we mature, acquire wisdom, develop our service, earn a living, have children, role model for family friends and community, teach, mentor and pass along our legacy.
We all discover that we must manage parts of ourselves that are less than ideal. We must all deal with thoughts feelings and behaviors that are rebellious and learn to guide ourselves to do well, self control. That’s the reason we all need “flying lessons” and good teachers too.
Well all of this growth and development is taking place and becoming organized within our minds eye by forming the emotional anatomy of compartmentalized thinking. I call it intelligently designed because when a new challenge arises, our emotional response to the new challenge references our lifetime of learning how to deal with that type of situation by choosing from compartments of memories and reflexes activated by our initial emotional reflex.
Ideally, our vast array of experience offers a right answer, we respond wisely avoiding pit falls and move on to the next challenge. This is the tug of war. This is our World War III. This is where emotional reflexes can overwhelm our better judgment. This is the battle between freedom and slavery.
I am proposing that through our open source language, we are shaping a new compartment within our emotional anatomy. We are choosing a vocabulary that is inviting exciting enticing our intelligently designed desire for freedom to choose.
Given a free choice, which will you choose, truth or a lie, honesty or dishonesty, freedom or slavery.
You personally are important and valuable to the future of the world. The choices you make, make a difference.
Smarter, Stronger, Better, Wiser, we are shaping a new compartment for understanding the story of freedom. Enjoy. Gratitude reboots the machine.
Freedom vs Slavery.
99%+ say that when given a choice they will choose freedom. Yet 2/3rds are overweight, rarely exercise, eat bad foods, won’t talk about bad habits, can’t understand what makes it is so hard to be human, slaves to self destructive behaviors, slaves to acceptance. Prideful, Embarrassed, Confused, Lonely, Limited.
This is world war III. The battle for freedom happens inside the heart mind body soul spirit. Totally unaware, the majority are being defeated. These are our family and friends. This is our personal responsibility.
Curiosity opens the door. This is world war III. The enemy is inside our own thoughts. “Too much information, I don’t want to deal with this, get away from me” shuts the door. This is my reason for this open source language of freedom to choose. Get involved.
New Concept: Emotional Anatomy. You are stuck with being human. Let’s talk about how the human mind works. So we have a chance to choose freedom instead of accepting our slavery. This is personal responsibility. At the core of healthy human thinking is our battle for personal significance. You personally are important and valuable to the future of the world, helping others sense personal significance.
Recognizing and understanding and explaining our own slavery is our first step in the battle for freedom. Welcome aboard.
Can you “hear” the whispers of opposition beginning.
Freedom vs Slavery.
An obvious compartment we can use to demonstrate how emotional anatomy works is the bathroom. We typically keep our private separate from our public, on purpose. Uncomfortable emotions create their own personality, drawing boundaries in conversation and speech. We can make people wince when we challenge their comfort zone.
Ok, so it is a little more difficult to understand emotional anatomy than I first imagined. But helpful will be to develop awareness of compartments. I conceptualize a compartment as being a specialized awareness. Another example, ice cream has it’s own full spectrum compartment.
Compartments are filled with memories organized by the emotions that create their compartments to begin with. The memories are sorted within the rainbows of similar feeling states. As we imagine ice cream, our minds come alive in ice cream memories, a full spectrum of flavors, colors, textures, locations, moods and circumstance etc. It is like the emotions of ice cream light up memory circuitry and too often trigger behaviors of more ice cream.
Post traumatic stress emotions trigger compartments of memory flooded with more difficult emotions and uncontrolled behaviors potentially overwhelming. Thoughts can get confused quickly. We tend to lose our way. “The gratitude spot” provides a point of reference by which navigation of emotional anatomy begins.
Just returned from a writer”s conference, best thing I ever did for myself. Speaking to others of Freedom vs Slavery as the two words that summarize the human challenge we all face together, is also the freedom to express myself regularly as my share in the puzzle.
Emotional anatomy is real. We are stuck with it. When we understand it, we too are liberated to pitch into making the world a better place because we are here. Well not immediately.
You see there are parts of ourselves we are not yet familiar with that get in the way of our own personal experience of freedom. That great joy of recognizing the personal significance of self and others is crushed by reflex generated grumpiness that perpetuates our moods of angry opposition. Divorce happens. And it takes a life time, even several generations, to begin recovering from our deeply wounded emotional anatomy.
Single breath relaxation gives us the privilege to step back for an effervescent moment into our liberated perspective of gratitude to discover visions from heaven offering contribution to solution available to us all.
The reality of emotional anatomy promptly forces our return to grumpy habits of self preoccupied slavery as years of accumulated bitterness speak tones of unforgiving wounds again. Emotional reflexes consume our best efforts into self justifying destructive habits blaming others to make us sick of fighting wars. Intelligent Design.
